iCloud

The best place for all your photos, files and more.

iCloud is built into every Apple device. That means all your stuff — photos, files, notes and more — is safe, up to date and available wherever you are. Everyone gets 5GB of free iCloud storage to start. And you can upgrade to iCloud+ at any time for powerful new features and more storage.1

iCloud Photos

All your photos and videos.
Always available.

A lifetime of photos
on all your devices.

With iCloud Photos, you can browse, search and share all the photos and videos from any of your devices, whether they were taken yesterday or years ago. Features like face recognition and object detection are processed locally on your device through machine learning, rather than in the cloud. And apps can only access your photos with your permission.

Take all the photos you want. Without worrying about space on your devices.

To save space on your devices, the original full‑resolution photos you take are automatically uploaded to iCloud. You’ll still always have a lightweight version of every photo on your device, and you can download the originals whenever you need them.

The easiest way to share photos with friends and family.

Shared Albums lets you create albums for trips, events or whatever you want. Simply choose the friends and family members who can see, comment, and add their own photos and videos.

iCloud Drive

Any type of file.
All in one place.

All your files available from all your devices.

The files you keep safe in iCloud Drive are easy to get to, no matter which device you’re using. You can access all your files from the Files app on iOS and iPadOS; in the Finder on your Mac or File Explorer for Windows PCs; or on iCloud.com.

Organise files however you want. Get to them on any device you want.

iCloud Drive lets you organise your files with folders, rename them and tag them with colours. And when you make a change, the update is made across all your devices. You can even have everything in your Mac Desktop and Documents folders automatically available in iCloud Drive.

Share folders and files with ease.

iCloud Drive makes it fast and easy to work with others from anywhere. Just send a private link and they’ll get instant access to the folders and files you’ve chosen to share. You control whether they can view, share or edit each file, and you can change these settings at any time. And anyone can participate since it works across iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows PCs and the web.

Apps using iCloud

Your favourite apps are
even better with iCloud.

All your essentials.
Accessible from all your devices.

iCloud automatically keeps apps — including Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Reminders, Safari and some of your favourite apps from the App Store — updated across all your devices. So when you add a new phone number, bookmark a website or update a slide in a presentation, the change appears everywhere.

Collaborate with Pages, Numbers, Keynote and Notes.

Work with others on documents, presentations and spreadsheets, and see edits as they’re made. With live updates on all your devices, your collaborators will always be on the same page.

Every message. Updated across all your devices.

iCloud automatically stores all of your messages. Search for an address, a funny exchange or anything else. And you can pick up every conversation exactly where you left off. Even when you move to a new phone or computer.

iCloud Backup and Restore

All the things that matter.
Safe and secure.

Automatic backups give you peace of mind.

iCloud automatically backs up your iOS and iPadOS devices when they’re connected to power and Wi-Fi. So if you lose your device or get a new one, you’ll have all the things that matter without missing a beat.2

Move to a new device with everything you loved about your old one.

iCloud makes moving your settings, photos, apps and documents to a new device seamless. Just sign in to iCloud when you set up your new device, and you’ll be ready to go in minutes.

Two‑factor authentication helps keep your data safe.

Two‑factor authentication is an extra layer of security designed to ensure that only you can access your account. That means your account can only be accessed on devices you trust, like your iPhone, iPad or Mac.

iCloud+

Powerful new features.
Plenty of storage.

When you upgrade to iCloud+ you’ll not only be able to choose the amount of storage that’s right for you, you’ll also get an even more powerful and connected experience across your devices. It’s everything you already love about iCloud — along with enhanced privacy protections for web browsing and email, and expanded HomeKit Secure Video support.3

iCloud Private Relay
Beta

Browse like it’s nobody’s business. Because it isn’t.

iCloud Private Relay lets you browse with Safari on different networks in an even more secure and private way — whether that’s at home, a hotel or a café. It’s designed so that websites, network providers and even Apple can’t use your IP address, location and browsing activity to create a detailed profile about you.4

Hide My Email

Keep your personal email address personal.

Instantly generate unique, random email addresses that forward to your personal inbox — and even let you reply — so you don’t have to share your real email address when filling out a form on the web or signing up for a newsletter. You can create as many addresses as you need and disable them at any time, so you stay in control of your inbox.

HomeKit Secure Video

Keep an eye on your home. Keep other eyes out.

Connect your cameras with HomeKit Secure Video to record, analyse and view your home security footage from anywhere. Footage is stored in an end-to-end encrypted format that only you, and the people you choose, can monitor. And none of that recorded video counts towards your iCloud storage, so you don’t have to give up space for the photos, files, backups and other things you need most.

Choose the plan that’s right for you.

All iCloud+ plans can be shared using Family Sharing. And iCloud+ is included with all Apple One plans at no additional cost.
